Our Timeless and Quality Shoes
Over 136 years of custom bootmaking
The Alden shoe company has manufactured quality shoes for men since 1884. With over 135 year of unwavering dedication to the highest standards of shoe-making, they proudly offer to us their collection of American handcrafted footwear. Not redone yearly at the drawing board, but reaffirmed continuously in the shop, heavy with scent of rich leathers carefully worked to offer the best!
The Alden shoe company is now the only New England shoe and bootmaker remaining of the hundreds who began so long ago. Still family-owned business, still carrying forward a tradition of quality genuine-welted shoemaking that is exceptional in every way.
For men and women
Style By Blain has one of the largest selections of Paraboot shoes for men and women on the East Coast. Paraboot has become one of the last emblems brand of “Made in France” and “Sewn Shoes” in the world of footwear.
How the Paraboot brand registered:
Remy Richard registered the Paraboot name in 1927, from “Para” – a port in Amazonia, where the latex was exported from, and “boot” – the interesting new shoe he had discovered in the United States. As we can see, it was a far more meaningful decision than simply creating a brand with an English-language-sounding name. And so, the Paraboot technique and style were born!
